It was so satisfying working with someone that’s so organized, well connected, and kept to her word. Always willing to help, going the extra mile and friendly! An all over professional service that I would recommend to anyone! All the best to Schonken-interiors! May you go from strength to strength - Deidre (Longlands Residence)
It has been fantastic to work with Elsje. Her enthusiasm is incredible and she really worked with me and who I am to put forward fantastic options. She really dreams with you and make you see things that you did not previously. Always willing to go the extra mile and do more that what she was asked / sourced to do. Looking forward to working with her further until our house and garden is done.

Elsje is extremely talented and it was such an enjoyable experience to work with her. She managed to transform our holiday home into a curated, magazine worthy visual feast. What I loved the most was her ability to make our holiday home beautiful and elegant, yet functional for a holiday rental.Could not recommend her more highly!

We approached Elsje as we began building our new house. She was able to interpret our ideas into a cohesive look for our home, that suits us and the building and most importantly our budget. We are more than happy with the end result.

Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!
Elsje is a very warm, vibrant and skilled, person, lovely to work with. She has lots of knowledge and experience and has excellent taste. Especially if you are looking for the “something different, and original touch” - finishes that you don’t see in houses around you. She is very practical, hands-on, and makes sure she exactly understands what you want.
You can call or email Elsje any time and she will come back to you the same day, even in very hectic times 😊. She is reliable and honest, two characteristics that is very important to me when working closely with people. You can trust her and she is just a lovely person to work with.
